If it matters to you, I'm an ENTJ.
I live by the notion that we only really ever have the moment we're currently experiencing to enjoy life with, so by that standard, I make the most out of every day. I will never be the guy that lives to work, and while I do know that life is expensive and houses don't come cheap, I value experiences with people more than material things. I do work a full time job in the cosmetics industry (seriously) and additionally do social media / trade show work for an artist, so don't think I'm a lazy guy who's looking for a handout or anything, I just know what makes me happy.
When I'm not working you can find me outside...somewhere. Maybe I'm catching a 6:00am surf session before work, maybe I'm off in Big Bear rock climbing / camping / snowboarding, or maybe I'm just in my backyard not being inside, either way, if there's daylight and I'm not working, I'm probably outside (unless you convince me to stay in with dessert and Netflix). I'm a huge sports lover as well, basketball / football / volleyball being my favorites, but I'll play anything. I LOVE going on adventures, whether it's to a new city/town or doing some new activity, you can count me in! I'm also a practicing yogi, so being health conscious is important to me as well.
I like to think of myself as pretty eclectic when it comes to music, but I definitely have some favorites. Rock & Roll, Alternative, Hip Hop/Rap, and Roots Reggae all have special places in my heart, but I'm not closed off to any particular genre and would love to hear what arouses your musical loins.
Humor is a big aspect of my life, and you will constantly find me cracking jokes and trying my damnedest to put a smile on your beautiful face.
Being chivalrous is an important aspect of who I am, but I think that just stems from me being a nice guy. Aside from having my mother and father both teaching me what their versions of being chivalrous means, I'm just a polite person in general.
What I'm Looking For in my S/O
I find intelligence to be very sexy. I love to talk, and like to consider myself knowledgeable on lots of topics, so having someone to talk about the universe and the likelihood of aliens existing is important to me. I'd love for you to be athletic and play some sports, but so long as you're adventurous and will go camping with me I'd be happy. You like the beach. No questions here, if you don't enjoy being there, move along to another profile. Be affectionate. No I don't mean it always has to be hot and heavy; hold my hand in public, lay down with me while watching tv, a surprise kiss, all of those are acceptable. Lastly, be comfortable in your own skin. I don't really find make-up attractive (haha I work in cosmetics, I see the irony) and would love to find someone who has enough inner beauty and knows they don't need it. Confidence is key with me.
I don't ask for much, and honestly people put dating too high on a pedestal. We all have a "checklist" that we'd like our other to match up with, the question is how superficial is your list? If you are outgoing, adventurous, sporty, and actually read this far, you should send me a message. If your list includes how much money I make, what car I drive, and how much I'll wine/dine you, then you're not for me.
If you seek a life of adventure, I seek to find you.
P.S. if "bae" and "swag" are active parts of your vocabulary, please don't bother messaging me, as I prefer someone literate.
No first date stuff, I like to write poems so I wrote another about me:
I love to write poems they help me release,
Express my true thoughts and find inner peace.
I resonate the feeling of taking things slow,
So as together we may connect and grow,
When you move too fast too much you forgo,
Time will tell the speed of the flow.
I like to be active you won't find me sitting,
On sports and adventures I'm always committing.
I hope you like fun cuz I'm always providing,
The best of times are what I be presiding.
Deep conversations to me are required,
A girl with a brain is what is desired.
Communication is a two way street,
Please don't stare blankly like a piece of meat.
Let's talk of the cosmos and the wonders of space,
Unlimited options in that big open place.
To go into space would be quite a feat,
I guess my adventures will just stem from the street.
Life is a journey and I plan to travel,
This world is a present which I plan to unravel.
Distant lands and majestic sights,
Dazzling sunrises and romantic nights.
There's so much for the eye to see,
I hope one day for a P.I.C.
If this is enticing then I hope you'll reply,
I truthfully am a pretty nice guy.
I've seen much worse on this dating site,
Some guys be creepy like a screech in the night.
I'm genuine and real and hope for the same,
I'll introduce myself, Michael is my name.
